Metabolic Strength Vol 3 & Vol 4

Vol 3 & 4 is the next DVD in Tracie Long's Metabolic Strength series. This DVD contains two more 30 minute workouts Well Built and Full Steam Ahead. I loved Vol 1 & 2, so I totally expected to love Vol 3 & 4 just as much. But I didn't. I did love Vol 3 … Continue reading Metabolic Strength Vol 3 & Vol 4

Metabolic Strength Vol 1 & Vol 2

Tracie Long has 3 DVDs in her Metabolic Strength series. Each DVD has two 30 minute workouts on them. When previewing these workouts, I immediately knew I wanted them all. Total Fitness DVDs has clips of all of the Metabolic Strength workouts up on their website and that is where I previewed and purchased these … Continue reading Metabolic Strength Vol 1 & Vol 2

Grand Total: Vol 2 – Rarin’ To Go

Tracie Long's newest workouts are Grand Total Vol 2 & Vol 3. I enjoyed Vol 1: Going Strong, so when I saw these were available for pre-order, I ordered them. Vol 2 Rarin' to Go is another excellent intermediate level workout. Just like Vol 1, it is cardio + strength and it is varied--you are … Continue reading Grand Total: Vol 2 – Rarin’ To Go

Reboot: Real Evolution, Vol 2

I enjoyed Tracie Long's Real Evolution, Vol 1 so much I decided to purchase her Vol 2. Real Evolution Volume 2 is a cardio workout with some core work at the end. I found this to be an intense intermediate level cardio workout. Tracie uses props to get the cardio burn but it is not a … Continue reading Reboot: Real Evolution, Vol 2

Longevity: Defined Lines

Defined Lines is the 6th and last workout in Tracie Long's Longevity Series. I have done all of her other workouts in this series except Step Forward, which I have no interest in. So far I have loved them all except for Back Up. I am not sure how I feel about Defined Lines. I did like … Continue reading Longevity: Defined Lines

Longevity: Back Up

Back up is part of Tracie Long's Longevity series. I wanted to like it more than I did. It is a good total body cardio + strength workout. I finished it several hours ago and my shoulders and upper back are still feeling it. But so does my neck and not in a good way. … Continue reading Longevity: Back Up

Focus: Power Up

Power Up is another 30 minute workout from Tracie Long in her Focus series and I did not enjoy it at all. I actually found it a very odd workout and I don't really understand the point of her Focus series now. From what I can see online (and what I have checked out from … Continue reading Focus: Power Up

Focus: Kickback

I have only done one other Tracie Long workout: Figure 30: Hips, and I did not like it at all so I never bothered with any other Tracie Long workouts. But my library carries a lot of Tracie Long workouts. Every time I go to the library, I always peruse their workout DVD selection. Well, two … Continue reading Focus: Kickback

The Firm/Zip Trainer: Firm & Cardio

Firm & Cardio are the deluxe add on workouts available at the time the Zip Trainer program came out (see that review for more info on what a Zip Trainer is). This deluxe add on came with a 7 pound core ball but the core ball is no longer available, only the DVDs. Firm & … Continue reading The Firm/Zip Trainer: Firm & Cardio
